Orange Student Recognized as Winner in the 19th Annual eesmarts™ Student Contest

Orange student Molly Kovar was recently honored as a winner in the 19th Annual eesmarts Student Contest.    

Presented by Energize Connecticut℠ in partnership with Eversource and Avangrid subsidiaries, United Illuminating, Southern Connecticut Gas and Connecticut Natural Gas, the eesmarts Student Contest invited Connecticut students in grades K-12 to showcase their energy smarts.

Participants chose from a variety of project formats based on their grade-level including poems, essays, posters, billboard advertisements, comic strips, short videos, persuasive images and more.

Molly, a 2nd grader at Turkey Hill Elementary School, received 2nd place for her poster, which depicted ways to save energy around the house like taking short showers, turning off the lights and electronics, using LED light bulbs and installing solar panels.

More than 600 students throughout Connecticut submitted projects for consideration. Twenty-nine entries from 19 schools in 16 Connecticut communities were selected as this year’s finalists.

Finalists attended an awards ceremony on May 7, 2024 at the Connecticut Science Center and received their prize and certificate.
